Essential Supplies for Hands-on Learning

Help me give my students the basic supplies that they need to do our hands-on science and math lessons.

My Students

My students face a lot of challenges, not only academically, but personally and socially as well. They are original thinkers and enjoy hands on learning and activities with movement.

Our public elementary school in Indianapolis faces the daily challenge of educating and motivating students that live well within the poverty level.

Our students are very active learners. They love when we have flexible seating options, STEM projects, and choice of tasks within their daily routine. They work best in a flexible, yet structured, environment.

My Project

The supplies listed are essential for both of my fourth grade science and math classes to create hands-on experimential learning tasks. We use the cardstock and index cards to create study cards and fraction models in math. Tape is like gold for our maker space and stem lessons; we never seem to have enough. The post it notes are good for group work and sharing our thinking. The glue is helpful for science experiments.

Please help to stock our classroom with these basic, yet also essential supplies.

These supplies will provide for hands-on learning experiences that my underprivileged students need. Thank you for your support!
